My new Crowntail Betta fish named Pheonix. :D #crowntail #betta #fish #pheonix #bettafish

Hi! Unfortunately this is a really bad home for Phoenix :( Contrary to popular belief, betta do not live in puddles and keeping one in a bowl will lead to its suffering and premature death.

Betta need at least 2.5 gallons to thrive, preferably 5 gallons. Bigger setups are actually easier to maintain!

In a small bowls like this ammonia builds up too fast and will slowly poison and eventually kill your fish. Fish create ammonia when they breathe and poo, and ammonia is toxic to them. Ammonia can’t be seen or smelled - so water can be crystal clear and still toxic to fish. In a container this small you’d have to be doing twice daily water changes to keep ammonia from harming your fish.

Betta are also tropical fish and require a heater! They need to be at water temperatures of 75-80 degrees - room temperature is too cold for them. Cold leaves them lethargic, sickly and open to other problems. But you can’t safely use a heater in a container this small, so again, I urge you to get him a bigger tank!

You won’t regret it - betta can be such personality filled, zippy little fish when given the room to be! Some studies even say they’re just as smart as other animals, and can feel pain the same way. So please don’t let your little guy suffer - get him a better home!

Why bowls and vases are bad betta homes

betta myths debunked

Here’s a cheap 5.5 gallon tank that would be great for your little guy! You just need to also get a heater.

If your not a marine biologist gtfo. Your facts are wrong btw. Its my fish, leave me alone.

So basically what you’re saying is: I don’t give a shit about my fish.

What this person linked and said is all true. I’m sure you didn’t even bother to read everything or click the links. Fish need much more room than you and most of the public think. I suggest listening to kai-ni, otherwise your fish will die in a year or two, and live a miserable life.

Their life span is 2 years, whats your point?

^ That just proved my point. You don’t give a shit about a living being. It depends on you for proper care. Even if it lived a few weeks, it should STILL receive the best care you can give it - which is NOT in a tiny ass bowl with a huge ass plastic plant that can rips it’s fins taking up most of the space.

Bettas can live an upwards of 5 years. I currently have a betta that is going on 5 years. When properly cared for they can live longer. If you don’t want to care for a fish, don’t get a fucking fish. 

Old people in nursing homes are going to die soon anyway. Lets make them live in closets.

Life span doesn’t matter. Life span is relative. What matters is how much good you can do within that life span- however short it might be. The quickness in which a cycle runs its course doesn’t determine its worth. If you aren’t prepared to make it the best you can, you shouldn’t play the game.

You keep telling yourself that you’re caring for your betta properly when they start getting fin rot.

The resin dried super fast today so I was able to get pictures of these guys. :D
I really, really like these. A lot. Even though the resin bubbled a lot more than it usually does, I was able to manipulate the bubbles to try and form them into bubble nests, which adds a lot to the cups I think. :)
Details:
THE FISH ARE NOT REAL. They are made from polymer clay.
The water is resin.
The plants are real leaves and flowers I found in my backyard. The substrate is sand.
They are in clear glass miniature cups so you can see through the cup at all angles.
These will be available at Tampa Bay Comic Con (August 1-3). You can commission one once my commissions reopen after Comic Con.
Please do not keep real betta like this! While these little bowls work fine for fake clay bettas, real bettas need at least 2.5 gallons (5 gallons would be better), a filter, and a heater. Please do your research before buying one of these awesome little fish. :)

This is the best, Bon! I absolutely LOVE the little bubble nests! It was a great idea to turn the bubbling in the resin into that! Gosh I love these!

So beautiful! Using real foliage was inspired.
